With just a few days to go before Vivo launches its next flagship smartphone Vivo NEX 3 and its variant NEX 3 5G, product manager Li Xiang has confirmed the rumor that the NEX 3 smartphone will come with a breakthrough 99.6 percent screen-to-body ratio.
In a Weibo post, Li said, the 99.6 percent screen-to-body ratio in the Vivo NEX 3 is calculated according to the general calculation method used in the industry, i.e., the front display area or the cover projection area. There may be some other algorithms, but it doesn't matter. No matter how it is calculated, NEX3 is the mobile phone with the highest proportion of front screens, and it is much higher than any other smartphone in the market.
He further said that it's very likely that no rivals can come up with a smartphone that would offer such a high screen-to-body ratio in the next six months. Li, last week, shared pictures of Vivo NEX 3 with a bezel-free and notch-less display and a dual-curved edge on a dark background.
